O God of all Creation, you call for us to love one another as you love us. In this world where anger, hate, selfishness and other evils abound, there is only one way that we can stand up against it. We must become unified in our desire to spread the unconditional love you have for us. You designed us to be social creatures and we are born without those evil ways. Help us to regain the innocence that we once had and to love like a small child. Give us the strength of character to overcome the temptations that lead us on dangerous pathways and guide us toward a world more like the one you intend for us. May we become instruments of your peace this and every day. Amen.
